LOCATION The location of Shaw University is especially convenient, situated practically in the heart of the Capital City. No car or cab fares will be necessary to visit the shopping district, State Department of Education, State Museum, State Library, Hall of History, and other places of educational interest. An exceedingly bracing and healthful climate makes this city an ideal place for residence and study. FACULTY The faculty for the Summer Session will be composed primarily of the regular members of the Shaw University faculty, together with additional specialists in the field of education. LIBRARY A well-equipped and attractive library, consisting of approximately 24,362 books, is located in Tyler Hall. It is supervised by a competent librarian who aids the students in their reference work and guides them in their general reading. Magazines and daily and weekly news- papers provide means for the information of students on current events. It is the aim of the Administration to make the library a place of great usefulness in the education of the students in technical knowledge and general culture. OBSERVATION AND DIRECTED TEACHING FACILITIES Local conditions make it impossible for the University to offer obser- vation and directed teaching facilities during the summer. DORMITORY FACILITIES Persons desiring dormitory accommodations during the Summer School should indicate that fact to the Registrar, not later than May 31 ; send key deposit of $2.00 with application prior to that date, making money-order payable to Shaw University. The University has adequate housing for those who desire to live on the campus. The women students are under the supervision of the Dean of Women who is assisted by dormitory hostesses, and the men students are under the supervision of the Dean of Men and assistants. Shaw University Bulletin 5 RECREATION Tennis, croquet, softball, and sightseeing tours are among the forms of recreation provided by the University. In addition, several social events are held for the students and faculty of the Summer School. TEACHERS EMPLOYMENT BUREAU The Bureau has secured each year a large number of teaching and administrative positions for graduates and former students. It exists for the double purpose of supplying the needs of school officials over the State and of helping students and former students to find teaching and administrative positions for which they are best suited. ASSEMBLY Assembly exercises are held in Greenleaf Memorial Hall periodically during the session. All students are expected to attend these exercises. Special addresses are arranged and interesting recitals presented.

The workshop-seminar is designed to give its members an opportunity to clarify their thinking on problems of educational philosophy, and to give them assistance in denning educational objec- tives. Each member will be given a chance to work on problems which are encountered in his particular school situation. Those who bring similar problems will be encouraged to work in small, informal groups. In addition, they will have easy access to the services of a group of sympathetic and competent workshop specialists. Those who attend will be given credit for six semester hours. These hours will fulfill the state's requirement for certificate renewal, and, at the same time, will satisfy a requirement in reading or methods for those who may be changing a high school certificate to a primary or grammar grade A. Those interested in the development of reading programs for their schools will be given opportunities to work in this area. Members of our staff, persons from the State Department of Public Instruction, and competent workshop consultants from colleges and universities in this section will be available for special assistance. Registration for workshop will begin June 6. Special fee of $6.00 in addition to regular charges. For further information, please feel free to communicate with the Director of Summer School.
